Cheaper alternative to Benefit Gimme Brow?

I like Gimme Brow, but its expensive. Despite people saying they get ages and ages out of it, mine didn't last that long.

I'd like something similar but has to be light colour. I recently bought Maybelline Brow Drama and its hideous, I can't get on with it at all. The colour is too dark and I find the shape of the brush hard to use.

Can anyone recommend something else please?

I have known people to use the maybelline one with an old gimme brow brush (cleaned first). It gives better results that way apparently but I can't say as I haven't tried it personally. Might be worth a try if you still have an old gimme brow still lying about.

I could try that, although the Gimme Brow is a little stubby bottle and the Brow Drama is the same size as a mascara so the Gimme Brow wand won't reach that far into the other one. Also the colour is very dark, I much prefer the colour of the Benefit one. But I will try it to see if it helps. Thanks!

I was wondering the same, also I can't find a pencil in the same shade as the darker brown gimme brow.

I have ginger hair and dark brown eyebrow products look ridiculous on me. The lightest Gimme Brow is exactly the colour I like, but the other thing I've tried that is a very good colour for me is the Avon Glimmersticks retractable eyebrow pencil in Blonde. (It's actually a sort of light taupe.) I think it's about £8 full price but is sometimes reduced to less and that's when I stock up.
